    A pop star, a TV actress and top sportsmen are among hundreds of victims of an £80million Bernard Madoff-style scam, it emerged last night.



    Detectives believe at least 600 investors were duped in one of the biggest Ponzi frauds uncovered in the UK.



    Many lost huge sums and have been declared bankrupt. Others have lost their homes.

    The Ferrari-driving fraudsters are said to have wooed clients at plush sports clubs and upmarket bars, targeting celebrities in a con that was so convincing that some of the victims still refuse to accept they have been ripped off.



    Police were anxious to keep the names of the high-profile victims secret last night as some have yet to learn they have been duped.

    If you do not know that you have been duped by now, you must be living in la la land.
